Modems are used for dial up connections either to the internet or for faxing. Dial up internet is almost obsolete, faxing is still used with modems, mainly in the business world, but it too will soon be obsolete. I'd say that modems will no longer be a part of any computer with in the next three years.

Every time I load Windows, it defaults to 8bit colour mode, and 640x480, it doesn't let me fix it, either. Yet when I load in Safe Mode, it looks, and works perfectly.


It may be due to your Video Card driver. Try reinstalling your video card driver in safe mode also disable all start-up items for diagnostic purposes by going to start>run>msconfig tick Diagnostic Start-up Button > Apply > OK > restart windows.

I have a compaq presario F756nr with an Atheros wireless wi-fi card in it. Can I replace the wi-fi card with a Broadcom 802.11 b/g wireless LAN card?


no you cannot replace the built-in wi-fi card...
if you try to change the drivers for atheros wi-fi to Broadcam driver, your wi-fi card will not function anymore.... but you can always install another WI-FI card in your laptop... you can buy a USB Adapter or a Cardbus(PCMCIA) adapter for this purpose...if you want your wi-fi signal strenth and range to be higher, you can opt to buy an adapter which comes under N standard....N standard wi-fi adapters are capable of connecting at a speed of more than 300mbps(practically) to any N standard device like router....

Laptop LCD comes on at system startup and goes off


Sounds like you have the Laptop in Presentation Mode. If you look along the top of the numbers you may see some extra icons, maybe in a dark blue. One of these may look like a screen. If you press the Fn key (bottom left) and tap this "Screen Key" you should cycle through the various modes (LCD/LCD+ External/External Only)

Depending on the model, you may have dedicated hardware buttons instead.

You just buy a laptop with built wireless card or built in WIFI capability since you will buy a wireless router, that built in modem that you are saying is a modem use for dial up and you do not need that because I believe you have a broadband connection like cable or DSL internet...
